    Right-click & Select dialog doesn't work (2k3 SP2)

    I recently solved an issue with the "My places bar" in Office Open dialog, see thread at <post:=677,617>post 677,617</post:>, but one odd issue remains.

    If I in Excel, Word et al bring up the Open dialog, I can't select a folder with right-click and clicking Select. Nothing happens. However, if I try a second time on the same folder, it works; the Open dialog moves to the desired folder. But I don't have to try Select twice, it works if I, for instance, right-click a folder and select Properties and then after that click Select.

    I have seen the exact same result on another Office 2003 PC.

    So, could it be some Office update; Windows settings (since the context menu is Windows related and not Office), maybe even related to IE, since it is, well, very integrated in the OS; could it be left traces from older Office installations. It's odd since I have checked and seen the same on another PC.

    So, a question to anyone out there using Office 2003 (SP2); can you right-click a folder in the Open dialog in Office and click Select, and it works?

    PC 1: English Office 2003 SP2 and this summer/autumn updates, Swedish OS, IE7.
    PC 2: English Office 2003 SP2 + some updates, English OS, IE6.

    It behaves exactly as you describe for me too, on two different PCs

    Office 2003 SP2, IE6, UK English
    Office 2003 SP3, IE7, UK English

    Thanks for checking, Stuart! When I saw it on a work PC, that I have not installed anything on, can't install on, other people admin. it, then I was almost sure this must be universal.

    Guess MS has made a mess of some update, surely it can't have been like this at release.
